imks-crowie-13.jpg

Quite and exciting weekend of racing took place as 6 Ironman 70.3 Series races on 4 continents were on the schedule. From Japan to Kansas and places in-between, the pros and age groupers were out giving it their all. Unlike previous weekends in Europe which has seen swims cancelled or even a race cancelled, this weekend didn't have anything like that at all.

Here are the Ironman 70.3 Pro Men's and Women's podiums results from this past weekend, with some highlights and some unorthodox analysis.

Highlights:
- Craig Alexander wins back-to-back races, with Hawaii last weekend and Kansas this weekend.
- Laura Bennett & Emma-Kate Lidbury both podium-ed last weekend in Raleigh but this time flip-flopped positions with Lidbury winning Kansas and Bennett taking 2nd place at Eagleman.
- With the wins Bevan Docherty, Andy Potts & Emma-Kate Lidbury all now have 3 podium finishes this year.
- 3 men from Australia won races on the men's side, while it was an even split across the board on the women's side.
- Overall Australia had the most victories with three, with New Zealand and the US having two.

At a high level, the results show that some of the fastest splits and finish times on both the men's and women's side took place this past weekend in Maryland at the Ironman 70.3 Eagleman triathlon.
